Childish Gambino’s Because The Internet was one of my favorite records of 2013. It still feels so new that I haven’t stopped listening. The record and accompanying mini-screen play tells the tale of a disinterested dealer and his crew of would be entourage cast mates as they meander through their world, one hamburger at a time. The entire record was ambitious and strange, which is a half-way decent explanation for Gambino himself.
Today’s visuals are for “The Worst Guys” featuring Chicago’s indie darling of right now, Chance The Rapper. The clip is another carefully constructed piece of the script/album/short film project, and finds the mob spending a day surfing while simultaneously smoking blunts (seemed impossible to me too), crushing chicken wings, and training on the beach like Daniel-son and Miyagi. Cue the glow sticks, fire pit, and shark bites.
